I am the only consistent person in my life and so I better like myself, and I better love myself. And I really better know that I'm as beautiful as anyone else.
Well, today I get a lot of people telling me how beautiful I am and it is very strange from going from the only person who ever believed that, to hearing that on a constant basis. And I feel like it's not like a weird cockiness thing, but because I had to train myself to believe it and I really do believe it, but I had to work at it. So, it's hard for me to say 'thank you' in a lot of ways because, I always thought of it as secret that only I knew, 'only I know I'm beautiful, you don't know what you're talking about.' It's very strange and I have to accept it.
People are always like 'wow you are so strong,' but I think of it is my strength came from weakness in a lot of ways [...] because I just got so tired, it was like being beaten. That's what made me kind of start to stand up, for myself.
When I was younger, anything that went wrong was the end of the world. But as I've gotten older, I've learned to stop myself and say, 'Hey , babe, calm down. Tomorrow there will be sun.'
I don't know what it's like to be Precious, but--you know what?--she's not an alien to me. Not because she's a big girl. I've had to deal with difficult things in my life because of how I look. I have been made fun of for my dark skin by my older brother - he has lighter skin. In school the lighter-skinned or pretty girls would make fun of me. I don't know what it's like here or other places, but in the US it's definitely a big deal. Darker-skinned people sit at the back of the church, you know?
I learned to love myself, because I sleep with myself every night and I wake up with myself every morning, and if I don't like myself, there's no reason to even live the life. I love the way I look. I'm fine with it. And if my body changes, I'll be fine with that.
